President Zelensky of Ukraine met with Swedish environmental activist yesterday to discuss how the effects of Russia’s continuing attacks of his country have negatively impacted its environment, and, of course, killed many of his people.
Marge Greene got wind of the meeting, probably on pro-Russian social media, and, never one to allow a terrifying right wing bugaboo – like a slight 20 year old advocate of sustaining a livable planet garnering favorable news coverage – to go unmolested, Marge trotted out her favorite Kremlin talking points to attack the both of them.
MSNBC has the details of the meeting.
“Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky met on Thursday with Swedish activist Greta Thunberg and other members of a new group looking into the environmental consequences of war. They discussed the impact of the attack on the Kakhovka dam and hydroelectric power plant earlier this month as well as other issues related to the “destructive impact of Russian aggression on nature,” Zelensky said in his nightly address…
…Thunberg decried the global response to the Kakhovka dam collapse, which she described as “ecocide,” while speaking in Kyiv. The world’s reaction was insufficient Thunberg said, according to Reuters. “We have to talk louder about it, we have to raise awareness about what is going on,” she said. The collapse could “forever change ecosystems,” Ukraine has said.
Ukraine said Thursday that it is investigating more than 200 war crimes against the environment and 15 instances of ecocide. Prosecutor General Andriy Kostin said Ukraine is the first state to prosecute environmental war crimes and ecocide “on such a scale,” according to a Telegram post from the Office of the Prosecutor General.“
Needless to say, many on Twitter were outraged by MTG’s repugnant parroting of Russian propaganda:
Since Marge and half the GOP are full-time employees of Russia, can we stop paying them in tax-dollars and maybe in Vodka instead?

With one misguided tweet, she effortlessly craps on living heroes, fighting for sovereignty, and earth's very survival. It's difficult, and likely unwise for me to express the (actual) level of animus I have for her.

You and me both, Bruce.

Nothing says class quite like calling a Jewish person a Nazi.

Is Marge unraveling? Did she see this on the TV that turns itself on?

She is disgusting. Parrots a genocidal dictators lies just to be oppositional.

I can't even act that stupid.

She’s in a league of her own.
Try as you might, Marge, drumpf will not pick you for his running mate, not while he has options that can approach a mirror without it shattering in abject horror.
But you keep on making an ass of yourself in your floundering futility, idiot.
We need the yucks.
